A coworker recently told me that I have patience. I was surprised because that's a characteristic that I don't usually associate with myself. As I have volunteered at the local nature center, I have observed a friend who is patient as he navigates the politics and challenges of a non-profit organization. As I reflect on my own actions, I try to learn and be more patient in approaching different situations, including areas of my spiritual journey!
God is patient with us. He is willing to wait for us. As we think about our journeys and how we interact with others, we need to remember God's patience. We need to align our expectations with those that God has for us. We are called to serve God at different times and in different ways. We can also share His lessons and message of Salvation in different ways. We can trust in God and be patient in the plan that He has for our lives!
Follow God's plan and learn to be patient in Him!
Thank You for the people in my life and examples from You that teach me patience. Help me to continue to grow in You and to be patient in You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
